Food was imaginative and tasty. Plating very attractive. Good jazz in background. Waiter very helpful and animated. A bit pricey but will return.

Peu assaisonné. Gravlax trop sec. Tartare peu rehaussé. Je n'y retournerai pas

L'ambiance est plutot pour une clientele agée 50 ans et plus. La cuisine est très banale par rapport aux prix. Les plats sont chers quand meme.

Our waitress (who said she only works on Fridays) spent the entire meal laughing at me each time I made a request. She seemed very uncomfortable and said that she could not make any of the drinks on the menu (Except for the Gin and Tonic.) When her friend came into the restaurant for a visit (not sure who the visitor was, she was talking loudly behind a curtain with our waitress though as we ate a few feet away), she spent at least 5 minutes talking rather than bringing me my drink I had ordered prior. When we expressed our displeasure with the service , she argued with me and said that I was a rude customer. Never been treated so poorly by a waitress in my life. Food was OK, but for the price, you could get much better service going to a less costly alternative such as the Burgundy Lion (or even a chain like the Keg!)

C'était leur dernière journée d'ouverture avant de fermer pour une couple de semaines. Le propriétaire était notre serveur. Le foie de veau était super délicieux.

We actually thought we reserved for December 25th. Thank you for the points but we did not have the pleasure or opportunity to eat there yet

It was a quiet evening, few customers. Food was ok. Service was acceptable, but inconsistent. The biggest disappointment was that before I started ordering, I asked the staff to make sure that I could redeem a promo coupon. The waitress said she was going to check with the manager, who then refused to honor it, but only at the end of the meal as he brought us the bill. I find that extremely unprofessional, and did not make any effort to accommodate a new client.

Quiet mid-week evening dinner. Quiet because the restaurant was mainly empty, and my dining companion ended up missing dinner due to a meeting running long. I stayed because I was already seated, and I was hungry! The bread plate had toasted "sticks" of black bread, and not-so-fresh olive bread, with a little dish of creamy chive spread. Started with the appetizer of foie gras au torchon with apple chutney and brioche. Delicious! Unfortunately, I did not enjoy my "main" of the Warm goat cheese salad with raspberry Vinaigrette and roasted pine nuts. It was more of a composed plate instead of a salad. The small mound of greens was fresh and tasty, but the cheese was plated as a cake melting atop a toasted slice of black bread (like an open-faced sandwich) and had a weird, plastic taste I could not stomach. The plate included some julienned apple garnish on the side but that could not save the cheese. Since I was still hungry, I asked for the side of a small casserole of cooked vegetables - which was very simple but tasty. I decided against dessert (I have to really be in the mood to enjoy dessert) and left somewhat hungry. Service was efficent, and I did appreciate that the waiter asked me about how I (did not) enjoy the goat cheese salad when he saw all I finished was the greens and the apple. He surprised me by not charging for the vegatble casserole, whoch was an appreciated touch.

The ambiance was really nice, great for a date. The food how ever was just ok. I decided to go with the discovery menu which is four surprise meals. The first meal which was foie gras was very tasty. The second meal was octopus risotto and the octopus was over done, very tough. The third meal was beef tartare which was good and the dessert was good too. Overall the food was not memorable. Nice place good service but would not return.
